My Students

Do you remember sitting at home, enjoying your favorite book? My students are in need of books they can read at home. I am requesting Time for Kids and Weekly Reader for my students to read.

My kids are in 6th, 7th and 8th grade.

They love to read, but don't always have the materials to read at home. They attend a school in an urban area and don't have all the opportunities that other kids are fortunate to have. Even though they don't always have everything they need, they are always willing to help each other out.

My Project

These resources will allow my children to be life long learners and readers. My students will learn about current events that are happening in their world. It will instill upon them how important reading is and how much they can learn from reading.

This donation will impact the lives of our future leaders and will make a difference in the lives of young adults.

My students will be able to see how important reading is and how enjoyable it can be.
